Ok so I think I figured out what the problem was with my Fuze+ not keeping the time after a restart.
I’m still not sure if this is related to any battery drain (when off) issues.
Anyway I decided to do some testing with MTP and cover art sizes, normally I manually put albums on
or sometimes I use Winamp but the art transferred with Winamp in MTP mode is too small (empty white space on the player)
I wanted to see if Windows Media Player (Win 7) would transfer the same size art and it was different
than winamp for some reason the transferred art covers the area with no white gaps unlike winamp.
They do seem to be stretched though / lower quality.
Normally I transfer images @ 555x555px - 72dpi - .jpeg max profile with no color edge sharpening and no smoothing.
So I can tell when the cover art looks like ■■■■ on my player easily. And I have any and all software on my PC disabled for auto downloading Tags/Art… I prefer to aquire my own art rather than the crappy garbage that will get auto downloaded from programs such as Windows Media Player.
Ok so I guess I got side tracked lol
Prob don’t matter because this place seems pretty dead, its rare I get a reply at all to any posts lol
So what I think fixed the issue for me (the Time bug)
was when I loaded WMP and then plugged in my player I immediately got a WMP pop up
asking me if I wanted to sync my clock online for DRM/Media rights reasons.
I said yes and did some rebooting over the last couple hours and the clock now works perfect.
I should add that when i clicked yes nothing really seemed to happen and my clock was still wrong.
I gave it a minute, then set the clock and rebooted.
Somebody should put a note on the box mentioning you need to load Windows Media Player
if you want your Fuze+ to function properly… And that there is virtually no support for this thing.
It seems I have to find and fix and share any bug I come across and no RMA’s are not a
sensible or practical catch all solution to all problems… Kinda strange also that out of all the discussions nobody
mentioned the hey ya wanna set your clock pop up lol
